The saw lists itself as 8.25″……and its 90 degree max depth of cut is 2-7/8th .
Since most home construction is done with 2x material…..is this not the stupidest tool every invented. It leaves the last 1/8th inch of the second board.
I fully understand the 60 degree bevel and other advantages of the saw. Yet the ability to cut both pieces would be a massive time saver.
Freud makes a 8.5″ blade that does fit and fully clears the blade gaurd.
Yet it does not have a diamond center, just the regular 5/8’s arbor.
Does anyone else make a 8.5″ blade with a diamond arbor ?
Make my own diamond cutout in the Freud 8.5 blade with my dremel tool ?
Quit my complaing and get a 10″ circular saw.
